100:100 | Hommage an Merce Cunningham

The Rhein-Main Region celebrates the Centennial of Merce Cunningham birth

Merce Cunningham is one of the most famous choreographers in the world. He has revolutionized the understanding of dance and movement with his Cunningham-Technique, philosophy and his constructive-situational approach. His life-long collaboration with John Cage has been influential for the whole arts avant-garde beyond the limits of dance.
Therefore Paula Rosolen/Haptic Hide, Tanzplattform Rhein-Main, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, the MAK, the Hochschule für Gestaltung and a group of professional dancers, choreographers and dance-amateurs, join forces to pay tribute to the great choreographer. In Paula Rosolen's homage to Merce Cunningham, the dance sequences of the dancers and choreographers flow together into a large group score, embodying Cunningham’s movement principles creating together an outdoor performance with a live music score by Nicolas Fehr and David Morrow and costumes conceived and designed by Michaela Kraft.
